Ambience: Manually pick UI colour [duplicate]

When creating ambiences the automatic colour picking algorithm often picks brown or some other awful colour as the colour on which the UI is based.

My suggestion is that when setting the ambience from a gallery image you can manually select from the gallery image the colour that will be used by dragging a target/magnifying glass over the image. A live preview of the UI should be shown while dragging so you can see what you're picking.

This seem to be a duplicate of https://together.jolla.com/question/11939/override-automatic-ambience-colour-selection/

In the meantime check this for manually tweaking the colors: https://together.jolla.com/question/11949/black-and-white-ambiences/#post-id-12163

I disagree and have re-opened this. It's not a duplicate. My suggestion is a specific method on how to override the automatic selection.

Okay, and what is the part this question brings as new compared to the other question? Both of you want to pick some color easily other than the automatic selection. The other one -- having 23 upvotes already -- indeed did not specify how to achieve that, so just comment there with your idea. You both want the same, why fragment the upvotes (and thus lower the priority the case will be addressed by Jolla)?

Please reconsider.

Do you remember that when we first started the Jolla there was at one point selection of colors - At thst time I didn't realize the actual effect, but later I realized that color selection choose the ambience main color as all the user ambiences will result automatically selected color by the algorithm.

It would good if the ambience creation would allow manually pick the main ambience color from color wheel or even with rgb code etc.
